Description
Queen Victoria's pony bath chair, a one slope chair with a leather apron to cover the riders knees. It was drawn by a pony who was led by a footman for a slower, steadier ride. The Bath chair was originally designed by James Heeth c.1750 and thought to be named after the place of origin, or possibly because the design resembled a bath tube. This one belonged to Queen Victoria, built for an older and more fragile Queen who was finding it more difficult to get around. It was donated in 1936 by HM King Edward VIII with several other Victorian carriages.
